Property owners are encouraged to review snow removal procedures and sign up for notifications in advance of the first snowfall. The snow removal parking restriction ordinance for the season starts on Friday, Nov. 15 and will remain in effect until March 15, whenever a snow event occurs.
A snow event is defined as an occurrence in which more than two inches (2”) of snow accumulates on the roadway and will be noticed on the city’s official website. When a qualifying snow event occurs, parking restrictions will be in effect. Plowing of all streets will begin on a priority basis.
“Our Geographic Information System (GIS) Division recently created a helpful new interactive snow removal map that will help keep the community even more informed about where the snow plows have been, where they are going next and how snow removal on roadways is prioritized,” states Kerry Hammon, public information officer.
The city’s public information officers will issue public notices of snow events and parking restrictions via local media outlets (TV, radio, print, web), city website, Facebook, Twitter and text alerts. The public is encouraged to stay tuned to these communication channels during a snow event for parking restriction notification, information and updates.
“We encourage residents to review the snow removal information and maps prior to the first snowfall to gain a better understanding of the process. If you know of someone who has recently moved to Idaho Falls and may not be aware of the parking restrictions or how to sign up for alerts, please share the information with them or direct them to our website or the Street Division,” adds Hammon.
